First reviews are in for 'Ben is Back' starring Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges




Long story short: yes, we have two drug-addiction melodramas this year between parent and child. Yes, this one is also getting insane universal acclaim for the leads, this time Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges, and they will probably be in the Oscars race this year.

'Ben is Back' as a movie is getting mixed reviews, but the acting is top notch. Now it's just Lucas Hedges's worry of which of his two lead roles he's going to put in for Best Actor this year, this or Boy Erased. I'm guessing it'll be this one since this got WAY better reviews for him. 'Ben is Back' hits theaters in December.

Also, methinks Lucas might need a tag here soon since he's got so many damn movies out this fall.
